I have a blog hosted on wordpress.com (nextbyramla.wordpress.com). I wanted to install a plug-in from a third party (Canvas; http://support.freshpursuits.com/documentation/show/installation).
The instruction says:
Step 3: Upload the Canvas folder
To install Canvas, simply drop the entire Canvas folder into your WordPress plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/) and activate the plugin from your Plugins page within the WordPress administration panel.
I am not self-hosting wordpress (which I started using just yesterday)... so plz tell me:
1. Is it allowed to install third-party plug-in?
2. How do I access the plug-in directory, where is it?
3. If my blog is hosted on wordpress.com, how can I get an external theme if I dont have servers of my own?
I am very new to wordpress - please help!
